Description

Nourishing Leith and reclaiming our heritage: Recreating and repurposing a community building


Very exciting times lay ahead for the Croft! Could our community croft dream have the chance to become a reality?
To do this we are going to need your help!!! Read on, please!

You may know that we, Leith Community Crops in Pots, run, amongst other things, the growing project known as ‘Leith Community Croft’ on Leith Links, with and for the local community.

On the basis of our work to date, we have been given an exciting opportunity to develop the small pavilion on the Croft (previously used by Leith Athletic Football Club), taking it into community control and making it a real asset for the people of Leith. This will only happen if you want it, and what exactly happens depends upon your ideas. For this reason we are asking you to complete a short survey. It should take no more than ten minutes to complete. This survey has been independently designed by Community Enterprise Scotland, who will also be analysing the results. Click the link below to reach the survey.

Community Enterprise Scotland Survey - but please come back to this page because that is not all.

To celebrate our achievement, we wanted to bring the community together for a good old Christmas Hootanany on the run-up to the festive period.

Christmas Carol Singing

~ with the fantastical amazing one and only - Mrs Mash

Join us for some tales and song by the fireside, with toasted chestnuts & marshmallows, mulled wine, mince pies and fire torches to light the Croft. A community social event, featuring Mrs Mash, who will lead the fun. If the weather is really bad the event will take place in the nearby Leith Dockers Club, 17 Academy Street, EH6 7EE. We would love to see you on that evening, when we shall also be able to chat about the future of the pavilion face-to-face.
